I've heard good things about Gradle, and "because everyone else is doing it" is rarely a good

Apache (and other open source) projects.  If integrating Cloudstack in other environments
or extending Cloudstack are important for developers and users, Maven might be the easiest
way to go. 

Just my .02.
